Austin Elite Rugby Release
Austin Elite Rugby is excited to announce a partnership with Facebook for the regional broadcast of its 2019 Major League Rugby season. For the first time, professional rugby will be brought to fans across the State of Texas via Facebook Watch.
“As we enter into our second season, we wanted to enhance our regional broadcast platforms and Facebook Watch is the perfect partner,” said Mike Ablett, Marketing Director of Austin Elite Rugby. “With all of our home games being aired on Facebook Watch, we are able to offer our content to a Texan audience, and the interaction that, the Facebook Watch platform enables is a great way to experience Austin Elite Rugby.”
Live Austin Elite Rugby action will be available for free on Facebook Watch via mobile and desktop devices and Facebook’s TV apps. Fans can follow the Austin Elite Rugby Facebook Page to add games to their personal Watchlists.
